Sit. Stay. Give. October 16-22

Better Together Animal Alliance (BTAA) is hosting an online silent auction to benefit cats and dogs in our community. The auction runs October 16-22 and features getaways, unique artisan goods, gift certificates and experiences at local businesses, and much more. 

“Sit. Stay. Give. is a special way for animal lovers to support pets in need,” Paige McGowan, BTAA Development Director, said. “This year, we have items ranging from a getaway to Walla Walla, WA to the most adorable needle-felted festive mouse you’ve ever seen (handmade by our own Executive Director, Mandy Evans!)”

Proceeds from the event directly benefit animals cared for through BTAA’s many programs and services. Whether animals need shelter care until they find a home or medical care that their owner may not have access to, funds raised through donations or events such as Sit. Stay. Give. help keep animals and their people together. 

“Every penny really does count. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we rely on charitable contributions to support people and pets in need,” McGowan said. “Together with donors, volunteers, and compassionate staff, we serve thousands of animals across our region each year, and it’s made possible by all levels of support.”

Those who would like to participate in the auction are encouraged to register early so they can have access and sneak peeks of items before they are added. All items will be available to view beginning Wednesday, October 13.
